    Yes visualize yourself as you go through the degree from entering the lodge all the way to the end. Attend a fellow craft lodge a few times so you can visually see what is going on. Sit on the front row so you can hear what is being said. Go to as many as your time will allow.

    Then when you study one on one with your instructor, close your eyes as you go through both the questions and answers and transport yourself through the degree through your minds eye.

    Make an effort to learn both the question and answer so you can be prepared for the next question.

    I hope this helps!

    For me what has worked best is learning both the questions and answers, then repeating them out loud during my commute. For me the out loud rehearsal was the most important part, and really helped the degree work sink in.

    It helps if you can watch the degree being conferred on another candidate. I went to four EA degrees while I was learning my memory work. I went to two or three FC's while learning that work. Plus, like was already stated, learn both the questions and the answers- helps you keep things in order.

    As already stated. Learn the questions and the answers.
    Talk to yourself as if you were the teacher and student.

    But then everbody is different. Just don't give up.

    Thanks for putting that out there, I've been trying different ways to memorize, I have a bit of a learning disability and memorization has been tough my entire life. Thanks again and thanks for starting the thread bro. Shakes6781.
